Trouble Adding a Gateway Data Source

Hey all.  I am not sure if I am posting this question in the right sub forum but here it goes:  I currently have an on-prem gateway setup on a local server.  The entire process is working fine refreshing on a schedule and feeding my reports.  I now want to add a new data source to that gateway. 

 

What am I missing to create a new data source?

Hi @PeeWhy ,

 

Are you the administrator of the gateway shown in this image? If so, switch to the "Data sources" page and see if there is a "New" button.

Hi @PeeWhy ,

 

The PowerBI gateway interface has now been updated. You need to select Manage gateways -> On-premises data gateways -> Turn off Tenant administrator for gateways -> Data sources -> New.

Or please use the URL to access gateway: https://app.powerbi.com/groups/me/gateways?newManageGatewaysUI=false , and it will display the old interface.

I do not have a NEW button on the On-Presises Data Gateways section. (or any section of that page)

Yes I am, and I did finally find it and was able to add my data source successfully.  I am not sure what changed but after several attempts to see the "New" button, it magically was there yesterday.  I am still scratching my head as to why it wasn't there before but I am not complaining.  Thank you for your help!
